. and introduce to you a man who is certainly no stranger to bringing clean technology to san francisco and electric vehicles, are mayor, ed lee. [applause] >> thank you, bob. >> you for your leadership. good morning, everyone. we are going to be talking about something that i have been very interested in, and that is mobility. the ability to have technology work for you, like this microphone. we have worked hard for a number of years. i had the privilege of working with gavin newsom in the past to during his administration to create the electric vehicle infrastructure for the city and began the conversation and the collaboration with the other counties to bring an electric vehicle corridor. it signals our efforts to support the creation of infrastructure to the electric vehicle industry. of course we have encouraged the private automobile creators to join us. today is a wonderful opportunity to do that with a bmw. any of you who noticed the labels in this city, you will certainly noticed the popularity of bmw as a corporation, not only a great company but one that is also on the cuttin
solutions for that. that is how we keep engaged. that is how we bring technology right to the neighborhoods to allow people to suggest how we improve. you are asking the population to tell you what is wrong? >> absolutely. =::év2 it's better than them coming to the mayor's office to tell me everyday? >> they do that? >> oh, yeah. >> >> they just show up to the mayor's office? when i go to the tech companies, they usually give me 15 minutes with the employees and i listen carefully to them because they have the talent and if i can satisfy them and they stay in the city, the tech companis will stay in the city. >> any other points that you want to talk about? >> sf city is our citizens initiative for technology and innovation. that is what i call the technology chamber of commerce and we have over 300 companies now that are members. they are helping us figure out how to make sure that the companies are here, comfortably, but also how we train the new workforce to continue this fantastic growth in employment with the technology companies. >> and these companies are paying? >> oh, yes.
in technology and industry alone. unemployment dropped from 9.6 when i started to 7.4 percent, third lowest in the state, and i said in other jurisdictions, i'll say it again, i think we contribute to marin and san mateo because we buy all the wine up north for all of our hotels and it's our airport that's keeping san mateo no. 1. so thank you very much for understanding that. but also to translate, that means 22,,000 or 25,000 san franciscoans are back to work and according to our federal labor department for the metropolitan area and just this area alone, we are the no. 1 job creator in the nation. no. 1 in san francisco. that's a credit to all of you. (applause). in commercial real estate we have experienced the strongest absorption rate since 1988, according to the 2011 data. this year we're looking to even best ourselves. we've got 78,000 square feet of positive absorption to date and forecasters are telling us to anticipate 1 1/2 to 2 million square feet by the end of this year. you don't need me to tell you how successful you are. just look around at all the cranes. in fact, i t
much. keep us focused on central market, too. tom from riverbed technology, thank you. trent, thank you very much for all of your great work. jimena from bank of america, thank you very much for stepping up. [applause] finally, the largest body we have today, but one of the most important ones, one that today we have shared appointments with the board of supervisors is our youth commission. [applause] yes. i assure you that people from this body, as well as all the other bodies, will one day see somebody standing in my place or in the place of the people standing by the side of meat and their respective offices. our youth are important. whether it is public safety, education, free muni, all the things we deem important to make this city healthy. you are charged with helping us with the best inclusion and policies we can have to keep families vibrant, keep our youth a safe, keep them motivated, and keep all of us paying attention to our next generation of people who will inherit everything we do and will inherit the good things as well as the bad things. with your help, there will be les
technology company, they've got investor confidence in our city. we're also creating investor confidence because we have in working closely with our controller and all the other financial organizations of our city and all of our departments, we're now on a more financially stable responsible path. we've done our pension reform, it's not 100 percent, we've gt a big chunk of it down and we're going to continue doing the smart things to make sure that pension is solid. and we've got structural reforms in our budget as well. we passed our first two-year budget. that's a wonderful accomplishment, one that i'm interested in to continue it make sure we plan for the long-term. and we're not going to rest on today's success. this is just a beginning and you know this is just my first year, 4 years, and i'm going gang busters on our financial economy, stablization and financial ideas because that's what we have to do first, is have a good economic foundation in which to grow. for the first time in years you've seen a lot of unity move around this city between business and labor, between the l
was built and the lot of technology underlying the entire world was built. we can now point to that collaboration sometimes called your production, the structure of the peer network and say it works. it build things that are globally important and have transformed the world. >> host: what connects them? you wrote in "future perfect: the case of progress in a networked age" to via pier progressive is to believe in the power of markets, to be a pier progressive is to believe the key to continued progress lies in building your networks in as many regions of modern life as possible. with a need arises in society issued building peer network. >> guest: peer progressives believe in the power of markets because when it works well is it a decentralized course. this is a principle that i take very seriously from a libertarian school of thought which is that a decentralized system will outperform a top-down conceptually planned system. this is an insect from the austrian economist hayek. the world is so complicated, because of the economy is so complicated, the city is so complicated,
to shrink their space by a third, without losing any jobs. part of that is technology. part of that is the efficiency of the building. part of is it is hoteling, but if you think about their traditional tenants and all the tenants in america get smaller by 30% without firing anybody, we wouldn't have to build any office buildinged for a long period of time. so what is remarkable about what is going on in the bay area, we have been able to absorb that contraction in the tenants, which jk put on the front page today and managed to overwhelm that with growth in technology and technology-related tenants, which is why what is going on in the bay area today is so extraordinary relative to what is going on in the rest of commercial real estate across the country. when we look at this, in practical terms, here is a prototypically way for a tenant in an office building. this layout allows people to reach a ratio of 110 square feet per person or over nine people per thousand square feet. this density, i think, is very important. it means a couple of things. first, it means that san f
electric cars. they shuttered the technology. we've seen our foreign competitors, we're playing a little catch-up in the united states. why hasn't the electrical taken off. >> i think it's the cost. 80% of the cost of my car is the lithium battery. every year they're cheaper more powerful and condensed. it's a beautiful car, but it was $100,000. a lot of people say, well, i would love to do this, but that's a lot of money. our goal is to spend $18,000 to $20,000, get in one of my cars, it won't be your primary car but your secondary car. the volts we only had three great months of selling them. our plan is to get off the defense of foreign oil. china announced that they wanted 10 million cars on the road. they just did a multi billion dollars investment. we in america cannot allow one more technology or business to go overseas, specifically china. we got to do that in america. my car used to be made in china but now it's made here in the united states of america. >> gavin: was that a value proposition? were you doing that because of traditional cheap labor you were getting there you have
." he recently wrote a long piece comparing the technology agendas of the two candidates. thank you for joining us, mr. smith. >> in the tech community, there are many verticals. they are all competing with each other. what are these companies looking for in the agendas of both candidates right now as far as clues for what might, head? obviously telecom issues are not something that often pop up on the campaign trail. where are the companies looking for clues as to what the agendas will be? >> i think ideally what they should be looking for is a common understanding of the rules of the road and the ability to enter the marketplace and compete with one another. i think part of the problem, and it is a real problem, when the regulators try to manage competition, one of the incentives is to become rent seekers and try to manage the regulatory environment rather than looking to consumer demand business models and engaging that way. i think what they are looking for is this certainty in what the rules of the road are, to the maximum extent possible, and rules that do not interfere with t

to innovation in technology and science and many other fields. the idea is this. in evolution there are many cases where a feature or a trait that evolved for one particular purpose turns out surprisingly kind of serendipitily when the organism in the environment changes. an example of this is feathers. we think feathers evolved to keep their owners warm basically. over time some creatures evolved feathers decided to adopt crazy new lifestyle of flying and ones had new feathers were better at it than ones that didn't have feathers. at one point evolution starts to skult the feathers to make them aerodynamic. so they're still just keeping them warm. flying birds have slightly asymmetrical feathers which gives them better aerodynamics essentially. you can see the shaping of after the change. the idea in accepttationy trait designed for one thing gets designed for something else. in the technology in it history of creative arts, in any field where people try to feel inventive and imaginative, that practice of taking an idea from one place and moving it over and kind of applying it in a new cont

that thatis cycle is technology-driven i get asked three or four times a day, aren't we just falling into the same bubble that we did at that time? and clearly technology and real estate are cyclical and we will go through cycles. having been there in sill cron valley in 2000 and sitting here today, there are a couple of things that i see as being significant. first and foremost, the tech tenants that we're dealing with are move stronger financially than the tenants that we saw in 2000. in 2000, the name of the game for these technology tenants was to go public and everybody was looking for an ipo as their exit. and given the focus on the ipo, they were all focused on market share, first and foremost, and almost everything else was irrelevant. today while the ipo market opens and closes, most of these companies are being managed as much to be acquired as they are to go public. and that means that there is a focus on the liabilities of the company, that there wasn't in '99 and 2000 and also the amount of capital is much more concentrated in a number of key vc firms and being doled ou
